This was a good choice because of proximity to the metro, bus and train options at the central station. The rooms were comfortable, but would like to see new carpet, it is a little worn. The pictures on trip advisor do not reflect the actual rooms. Get a room on a higher floor on the back side of the hotel.... More

We stayed here for two nights. Great location as it is close to everything including the train station. Fantastic breakfast! They even had soya milk which most hotels don't as I can't tolerate cows milk. And evening meal was also included which was a surprise. Lovely room! The only thing I didn't like was that the room was so dark,... More

Even though we just stay one night it give positive impression of this Clarion hotel. The only drawback is slow internet and room amenities is very minimal, Other than that we are happy with the friendly staff, room comfort even though in decent size, breakfast variety and excellent evening meal.

The hotel is conveniently placed near the central railway station, port and many of the attractions. The front desk staff are friendly and helpful, the breakfast has a wide selection, the rooms are designed more for form than function and there is a terrace from which there are good views. The dinner is nothing fancy and ends on the dot... More
